Nelson Helps Gramma and Discovers Chives
Nelson came to help Gramma clean up the strawberry garden in preparation for the growing season. We pulled out all the leaves and dead stems. Then Nelson made a discovery: Chives! "What's this?" he asked. I told him to taste the tip end of the green shoot. He did and a look of recognition lit up his face. "Onions!" I told him it was not onions, but close. Now he is excited to look around the yard at his house to find chives there. "Dad is really going to like this. He loves spicy things."
